Windows Server 2008. It finally has a name. Giving our upcoming server release a real name means we can all start planning for the next round of MCSE certification tests. There isn’t anything on the public Training and Certification site yet except for a mention that if you get Windows 2003 MCSE certified by June 30th, 2007 you can get a 40% savings voucher toward MCSE 2008 testing.
If you are already certified and you have access to the MCP Member site there is a preview of the new certification there. There are also a few Webcasts coming up in June on the new Windows 2008 certifications if you are interested.
At this point I want to go on a bender about standardized testing (particularly the testing my daughters have to go through every year in the US public school system) but I will leave that for some other time. I am more interested in your thoughts right now.
I am not a big fan of putting a bunch of letters after my name on my business cards or email signatures. So even when I get my Windows 2008 cert, you won’t see any obvious indication of it. I know some people will, but I personally ignore all that stuff. In fact, the more letters I see the less I care, but that is just me. But I would like to know your thoughts on the importance of me being certified.
How important is it to you that *I* be certified on the current products?
